The special assistant to the state Governor on student affairs, Comrade Joshua Nwafor noted the exercise as being transparent and urged the new leaders to align with the policies of the State Government to champion the course of good governance.

“I’m grateful to God for the conduct of this election, the convention came at a time that we needed it most because over ten years we have been struggling to have a leadership that would move the association to another level.
